MP Completes Gruelling Race

Friday November 15 2013


Dan Jarvis MP Dan Jarvis MP


BARNSLEY MP Dan Jarvis took part in a 25km race across the rugged terrain of the Peak District.

Grin 'n' Bear It, the race organised by the Woodhead Mountain Rescue team, was completed in three hours and 39 minutes by Dan.

Mr Jarvis said: “It was cold, wet, windy and very muddy - at one stage I was stuck in a bog up to my waist, but I was determined to finish.

“I wanted to do the run to highlight the important work carried out by the Woodhead Mountain Rescue team, who do a great job in all weathers helping out those who have got into difficulties.

"That people are prepared to volunteer to do this job and to go out, often at very short notice, is hugely to their credit. I look forward to supporting their work again in the future."

The Barnsley Central MP is no stranger to tough races, having completed the London Marathon in April with his father, Bernard - himself a veteran of over 100 marathons.

Stop fannying about doing silly bloody races and do the job that the (idiotic) people of our town voted you in for.

@STEVEO since when did he actually give a damn? Seems to me like he's been too busy all year running marathons. How is he supposed to answer to his constituents when he's on the road and out of breath most days?

I sent Dan Jarvis an email with a concern earlier on in the year, the first time I've ever contacted an mp, and didn't even get an acknowledgment. As a result of this, that was probably also the last time that I'll contact one.

Maybe if there wasn't any nepotism in employing his wife as a secretary on £40k, he could employ two non connected secretaries for similarl cost who would hopefully have time to deal with constituents enquiries.

He's not from Barnsley so doesn't really give a shit like all MP's..

No, Dan is not from Barnsley but I am. Dan has done a fantastic job as an MP for Barnsley. He has done more and promoted Barnsley since the first day he was elected. Far more than the last MP did in 10 years who, incidentally, WAS from Barnsley.

To the thick shit up thread that talks about London Harriers, you are obviously an imposter as there is no club by that name.

Suprised he has time to train for events like this given all the time they say they spend fighting for a better Barnsley.??

Reply Posted by Sally on Tuesday November 19 2013 at 23:35
Off Queens Drive you say? That dire road full of semi detached houses that leads to the hospital? Hardly St Johns Wood is it sweetie.

@Rainbow - I have plenty of time to train. I don't have a husband who expects me to be at his beck and call like the average Barnsley man.

Welcome to We Are Barnsley Mr Short. Express an opinion on here and you will be shot down in flames. The regular posters hate women. As for the spelling and grammar.............The men are controlling arses. I pity their poor wives.
